The former Wolverine standout was arrested on domestic violence and assault involving his girlfriend, Diamond Hurst, on Saturday evening. Both charges are misdemeanors.
After earlier releasing a statement, Michigan coach Brady Hoke further addressed the Clark dismissal and gave his views on domestic abuse at his weekly Monday press conference today.
“We had a situation during the bye week with a young man making a bad decision,” Hoke said. “After getting all the facts that we could that I could get, I made a decision to dismiss Frank Clark from the program.
“What’s been reported, and I’m sure been through it with a fine tooth comb is unacceptable. Is not what we want here associated with our program. I know the statement I talked about it being tragic – and domestic abuse is tragic. It’s tragic on a national scale. It’s tragic it’s obviously somewhere in our society. We all need to do something about it.
“And being an husband, being a father, having two sisters, It’s a message I send strongly to our football team about how we will handle ourselves with woman."
